"Puttin' On The Ritz" as written by and Irving Berlin....
If you're blue and you don't know where to go to
Why don't you go where fashion sits
Puttin' on the Ritz

Different types of wear all day coat pants
With stripes and cut away coats for perfect fits
Puttin' on the Ritz

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper
Super-duper

Come lets mix where Rockerfellers
Walk with sticks or umbrellas in their mits
Puttin' on the Ritz

Have you seen the well to do
Up and down Park Avenue
On that famous thorough fare
With their noses in the air
High hats and narrow collars
White spats and lots of dollars
Spending every dime
For a wonderful time

If you're blue and you don't know where to go to
Why don't you go where fashion sits
Puttin' on the Ritz

Different types of wear all day coat pants
With stripes and cut away coats for perfect fits
Puttin' on the Ritz

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper
Super-duper

Come lets mix where Rockerfellers
Walk with sticks or umbrellas in their mits
Puttin' on the Ritz

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper
Super-duper

If you're blue and you don't know where to go to
Why don't you go where fashion sits
Puttin' on the Ritz
Puttin' on the Ritz
Puttin' on the Ritz
Puttin' on the Ritz

Down, down
Up, down
Get your kicks
Got the Ritz
Dine and wine but not till nine
The time is right for us tonight
We can move
Move to the rhythm
We can
Move
Dance to the rhythm
I want you to move

    General CommentI was on the phone one day when this song came on and I sang everyword and my friend thought I was crazy. I didn't know who sang it or what it was called. So it came on again and I searched. This song is a great feel good song..very fun to creep your friends out with.

    General CommentI dedicate this song to Chrysal, my slutty rich cousin. WHAT DO YOU NEED A BATHROOM FLOOR THAT HEATS UP IN THE WINTER? Slut.

    General CommentThis song was referenced on Family Guy, that's the only reason why I know it. It's not originally by "Taco," but it is catchy.
